Growing up in Northern Ireland we had a saying “back to porridge (oatmeal)” that meant it was time to get back to work. In Georgia, schools are back, which means traffic, hectic schedules, meetings, sorts, oh and the list goes on…So, this now means we are looking for ways to supercharge our busy mornings, right? My niece, Lucie, just graduated as a qualified nutritionist and she has me completely hooked on Chia Jam with my daily oatmeal bowl -who would have thought? Adding protein rich elements to our daily bowl of oats just supercharges our day. They are readily available and delicious creamy nut butters that come in many guises such as almond butter, means it has never been so easy to add protein, fun and flavor to our breakfast routine.
So, here area just a few of my oaty favorites to start the day –
- Bircher Muesli (drizzled with Almond Butter and topped with fresh Berries and Chia and Flax Sprinkle),
- Warm Oatmeal (with Chia Fig Jam and Fresh Figs) and…
- Berry Granola Parfait (with Greek Yogurt and Honey)!
Old fashioned Oatmeal (porridge) is filling, hearty, gluten free and energizes you – so, go get some and supercharge your day!
